In New Jersey the presence of buried oil tanks are common, and many property owners that need to get an oil tank removed unfortunately were not aware of its presence when they purchased the land. Nevertheless, removing the oil tank as soon as possible is always the best option, and can save a lot of money and further frustration in the long run.


If your old tank did leak and soil contamination was discovered by town inspectors, our specialists can work to get you cleaned up and an NFA letter issued from the NJDEP.

We take on all of the steps to report all levels of oil spillage to your municipality and to the state. We help determine if the water table has been contaminated as well. If this is the case, we contact your insurance company for you to see if this is covered in your policy and to what levels.

We remove all contaminated soil and get town inspectors to come back to document that your property meets all local and state mandates. Then we fill in the hole with clean soil and work to restore the rest of your property.


Once an oil tank leaks, it cannot be fixed, but needs to be replaced. We can help you in this entire process, from helping you to choose the best kind of tank for your needs and locating the right spot on your property to ensure continued service with the least amount of interruption possible.

Most property owners choose to locate new oil tanks in their basement, garage or an outdoor area. We will assess your options and help you choose which location best suits your needs. We also carefully fit your new oil tank before removing the old, working one to ensure no interruption in heat or hot water.

Our experts can guide you in selecting which of the new modern options is right for you. These options can include plastic tanks which never rust, double-walled tanks that prevent leaks, enclosures to protect outdoor tanks from weather, and even crash barriers if your tank is located in a garage or parking area.


In addition to our oil tank services, we also install, replace, and service septic tanks. Many areas in New Jersey have only septic service instead of city water and sewer access, so it is important to keep these tanks and pipes in good condition to prevent deterioration, overflow or leakage.

At ERC Environmental, we offer expert advice and service in all aspects of septic tank ownership and maintenance. For new properties, we can install brand new septic systems that meet the highest standards for environmental safety and longevity. We also complete septic repairs whether to septic tanks or pipes. If septic is no longer needed, we can even do complete removal of septic systems, including bringing your property back to its original state.


One of the biggest concerns of property owners who need oil or septic services is what their property will look like after the work is finished. At ERC, we take the time to gently remove shrubs and bushes so we can replace them after our work is complete. We refill and regrade soil, and replant all possible shrubs and grass, even sodding where needed. If driveway construction was needed, we will subcontract pavement specialists to return your property to its original state.
